That's a lot of data. This is where types would be very useful for limiting 
what comes out of the point share.
If you lose the list of checkpoints you just need to copy it back from your 
computer. You also have to have the propper database loaded before loading 
the checkpoint list or else the checkpoints won't take. This is something 
that we're working on fixing.
